this is a lesson for you: change your avatar into provoking female photo and you’ll get detailed answers from reviewers… and freshface will notice you also
I hardly think a vague, drunk avatar of me is “provoking”. And I never use my gender to get ahead in this game. You’d be surprised how far simple and clear communication can get you (an optimistic outlook doesn’t hurt either).
You have really gone above and beyond in your reply. Thanks very much! I’m gonna have to print this out and keep it handing during my next redesign.
I know that the rejections, feedback, and redesigns will make me a better web designer in the long run as long as I hold onto my patience and keep moving forward. It doesn’t hurt to have awesome feedback from people here on TF. Thanks again!
@freshface Thanks for taking the time to reply with such detail. I can’t express enough gratitude. I’ll consider each pointer you made and try and muster enough energy for another go around (dropping back another Heineken or two might help me out in that department).
I was having fun the first 3 times but now it feels like trench warfare. I guess this is the kind of situation that separates that good from the really good.
@Michelle Heya chica! I totally regret expressing my frustration (because I totally know better when it comes to having patience) but what can I say? We’ve all been there, right? Thanks for the encouragement and making me crack a smile.
I’m usually really positive when it comes to taking rejection or criticism about my work but I’m at that point with my latest WordPress theme design where I need to decide if I should spend any more hours tweaking and resubmitting here, or, if I should ditch it.
It’s been rejected a few times for some very valid reasons (mostly typography and hierarchy) which I worked very hard to research and fix in the most recent design.
But this time my rejection email said, “I think it has a pretty good concept going but just doesn’t offer the level of quality to be a premium theme at ThemeForest.”
So my question to all of you is if you think I should even bother trying to improve it and resubmit, or just call it a wash.
And even if I do try and resubmit, I’m not even sure what it is that they hate about it.
